Douglas County, Missouri


MO Gen Web, Kristi Towe & Sharon Sanders, Coordinators


      The following list is believed to be a complete alphabetical index to the names of cemeteries in Douglas County, Missouri.  Cemeteries with more than one name have been listed under each one. In 2010, Pat Carmichael, of the the Douglas County Historical and Genealogical Society, published a revised five-volume set of cemetery books for the entire county including the large cemetery in Ava, the county seat.   Her original set of reference works was published in 1996-97. 
     These reference works are the most complete and accurate set of cemetery records that exist today.  They were made possible by Pat and a host of cemetery readers back through the years.  The third column below indicates in which of Carmichael's volumes that a given cemetery is listed.  Instructions on how to obtain these volumes can be found at this link:
Carmichael Cemetery Books (Douglas County Hist. / Gen. Society).
The Mo-GenWeb Archives contain files--mostly partial listings--for some of the cemeteries below.  Each cemetery with some information in the Archives is labeled as "(See Archives)" and a link is there for you to access that information.

Copyrights and Good Ethics -- This site is copyrighted to protect the many creators of the body of work contained here.  Use this information freely but tell your readers where you acquired the information.  A copyright comes into existence when a work is created. Only “original works of authorship” can be protected by copyright.  An example of this would be cemetery records – if you copy names and dates from a cemetery, that in itself might not be copyrightable, unless you have added information to it, such as compiling multiple cemeteries into one source, such as Laine Sutherland’s (et al) Gone But Not Forgotten: Cemetery Survey of the Eastern District, Douglas County , Missouri (1995).  My own transcriptions of Fairview and Oak Forest Cemetery are also copyrighted, because I added additional information not available on the headstones. For works created after 1978, copyright protection lasts for the “life of the author, plus seventy years”. For works created before 1978, the protection is good for a maximum of 95 years, with a minimum of 28 years. Note that “official government publications are not eligible for copyright in any form by anyone” – the information can be used, as it is public domain, but you cannot call it your original work. -- Kristi Towe, Coordinator
